Knickerbocker Hotel - St. Cloud Rooftop New Years Eve Event Description

Spend this New Year’s Eve under the stars at New York City’s Knickerbocker Hotel.  The historic landmark’s view of Times Square is easily the best in the city and while chilly city dwellers will be pushing their way through the crowd this New Year’s Eve, you’ll be soaking in luxuries thirteen stories above it all.  The Knickerbocker’s famous penthouse hotspot, St. Cloud, is delivering the most epic New Year’s Eve bash you’ve ever experienced.

The soaring lounge is named after the original 19th century hotel that used to stand at the famous Knickerbocker’s site and on this New Year’s Eve we honor it well.  Renowned bellydancer, Sultana Taj, will give an exclusive performance and two live DJ’s will pump electrifying mash-ups of the year’s best Top 40, house, and hip hop hits over a state-of-the-art sound system while you float between the roof deck that looks out on Times Square and the stunning Waterford Crystal Lounge inside – aptly named because the venue has unparalleled views of the Waterford Times Square New Year’s Eve Ball.   You’ll be dipping into a four hour premium open bar 125 feet away from the crystal masterpiece.  Toast with a glass of complimentary champagne as the DJ counts the crowd down to the ball drop.  Take your evening at this sky-high playground to the next level with VIP packages that offer luxuries like reserved seating and bottle service.  Guests of all-ages are welcome to this event, but the open bar and champagne amenities are exclusive to guests 21 +.

The Knickerbocker is famous in its own right and the 1906 façade has been fully restored with its Beaux-Arts design contrasted by St. Cloud’s sleek minimalistic vibes.  Inside, the 35-foot Black corian stone-topped bar offers the perfect place to quench your thirst amongst New York City’s finest.  Outside, Ivy covered walls contrast the backdrop of the city skyline as Times Square bustles below you.  There’s no holding back in New York’s famous open air wonderland.

This New Year’s Eve the Knickerbocker Hotel will bring out New York’s finest for the most extravagant event of the year.  Be at the center of it all in a lounge reserved for the select few and experience a high octane New Year’s Eve the only way a New Yorker should – from above.
